IPC! Find Out From the Judges How to Improve in Photo Competition!

by Trent Schick

Photographers, keep on grinding to pull your best images and work on your competition entries for the International Photographic Competition! 

The IPC is PPA's annual photographic competition that allows photographers to test their skills, and get advice on how to improve quality, impact and technique through constructive competition and critiques from qualified jurors. Participating in PPA's photographic competitions gives you the opportunity to:

  • Improve upon your finest work 
  • Earn recognition and admiration from your peers
  • Engage with the passionate and supportive photographic competition community
  • And improve your business!

If you choose to have your images critiqued, a judge will go through each image you've entered in the photo competition, explaining how it stacks up against the 12 elements of a winning image, and what you could have done to take your image to the next level if you fell short! So, be bold and enter your images to be critiqued by official jurors at this year's competition. Recorded critiques are a fantastic way to learn, specifically, how you can take your images to the next level.

To give you an idea of the types of things you can learn from a critique at IPC, check out this one from last year's competition. This is "Sunflower Family" by Marciana Vequist, critiqued by Janel Pahl, M.Photog.Cr., API.


The judging for the International Photographic Competition will be held July 30-August 2, 2017 and you will be able to watch it all at no cost via PPA's live online streaming of the IPC! Early registration opens May 22, 2017-June 20, 2017 by 5 pm ET. Entries submitted on or after June 20 at 5 pm ET will be accepted with a late fee through July 6, 2017. Note that no entries will be accepted after July 6, 2017 by 5 pm ET.

This year's IPC has some new rules. Be sure to check them out and enter your images early to beat the crowds and save some money!
